MADISON, Neb. — A 14-year-old girl admitted to first-degree assault in court on Monday, leading Madison County Deputy District Attorney Nathan Eckstrom to drop two other charges.
The defendant, who remains unnamed in court documents due to her age, is accused of beating another Norfolk teenager on video in February. Another teenage defendant is also seen participating in the video footage.
According to police reports, the victim sustained multiple injuries, including an orbital fracture and a concussion.
Defendant 1, the teenager who was in court Monday, will be sentenced on the assault charge on August 9th.
